I have just received news that Doc Sutton - Dr Grahame Sutton MBE, passed away last Sat on 8th March 2014, aged 85.
Doc was a long time rower at Kingston, joining in 1970 and continued to row until some years ago in a vintage wooden veteran coxless 4 that was nearly as old as his rowing kit! He had a sharp wit, but was always sympathetic and helpful with any athlete's ailments. Doc received his MBE whilst serving as a medical officer with the Royal Norfolks in the Cyprus emergency in 1956. In the midst of a forest fire and despite 2nd degree burns to his arm, he went in search of survivors and attended half a dozen soldiers needing first aid.
The funeral is at Croydon Crematorium. CR9 3AT on Thursday 27th March at 2.15 p.m.
Family flowers only. Donations, if desired can be made to the National Autistic Society c/o W A Truelove & Son Ltd, 107 Stafford Road SM6 9AP oronline.
